The film "Sunny" about a group of female classmates has hit cinemas in the U.S. after it emerged as the most popular Korean film of the year on domestic shores by securing 7 million box-office tickets within 12 weeks of its release.
The movie was first released in LA and Torrance last Friday, and is due to hit screens this Friday in other areas including New York, New Jersey, Chicago, Virginia, Washington D.C., San Francisco, Seattle, Texas and Hawaii.
Directed by Kang Hyung-chul, "Sunny" has succeeded in appealing to all age groups by conjuring up joyful memories of the 1980s. Whether moviegoers in the U.S. will be able to relate to its themes and characters remains to be seen.
